Although, if I do nothing, I won't be in last place at least!   Grin

Man, I wish I had more time the last two days.   The market has been doing so well.  I won't be able to get back into trading until Thursday.  By then, the rally might be over.  Sad

I'm short selling Lockheed Martin (LMT)  and Northrop Grumman (NOC).  I'm keeping my eye on some of the other defense stocks. 

I'm buying Fannie Mae (FNM) and Freddie Mac (FRE). 

I hope that the election swings things the way I think it will.  The Dems won more seats in the Senate than was expected, so the market should make some adjustments today.  *crosses fingers*

To be fair to Shaz, we should adjust his total equity by the amount he would actually have if it were not for the error on the VSE site.

Shaz has 2,000 shares of EZM.  The last price of the stock was $3.36 (I believe).  That gives an amount of $6,720. 

Another option is to give Shaz 200 shares of Lundin Mining (LMC).  That is what would have most likely occured in real life, and it would make Shaz a lot wealthier ($7,742 at the current price).

If it is indeed an error, I'd appreciate that. Can we do whatever would have happened in real life?

I'm pretty sure you would have received 200 shares of LMC in real life, but I will have to do some research.

Numbers don't make sense today. Yesterday I ended at under my initial investment, and today I've lost money, but I have an overall gain.

I am  Huh?

Oh shit!   Shocked

VTYE had a  25 to 1 reverse split and was renamed to VYEY.   The price of the stock should have gone up about 2500% per share.  Right now, I calculate that it went up about 2160%.  Not too bad.  Wink

In the real world nikocujo and I would not have been able to make so much money.   Our supply of VYEY stock would have been reduced by 96%.   We may have even lost money.  Blame this one on another mistake made by the game.

I know I'll probably jinx myself by saying this, but...

How much do I rock?  Cheesy

I'm sitting at #4 and I'd be #2 if not for nikocujo and Jack's little insider trading scheme.  Tongue

I officially suck at this.  Sad

I'd like it much better if I could buy British stocks, at least I'd have a better idea of what I was doing then.
